We took this place upon recommendation from our hosts at B&B San Pantaleo, in Sorso. We arrived at the restaurant early for Italian standards, the advantage of which was that we could choose a front raw table outdoor to enjoy the beautiful sunset. Service was very good, present when needed but not too hovering. The meal was a succession of... More

Was here ten years ago and remembered an excellent tuna starter. Sadly all rathertired now and the food was stodgy and unexciting. Pasta was good, service OK and friendly but really did not leave with any intention of a return. A pity, a small amount of attention to the place - above all the food - could pull this round.

One of the best restaurants in the area! The service is outstanding, creative kitchen and a very good wine selection. All at a reasonable price and during summer the summer season the outdoor seating area 50 meters from the sea is unbeatable. Only downside is that you have to use your own car to get to their location about 6km... More

We had a fantastic meal here, which was so good we returned for our last night in Sardinia. Guissipe and his fellow team could not have been better. Family friendly, great meal, great service. Thanks. Huskie Family. Hornchurch, UK.

This restaurant is incredible. It sits on the edge of a bluff overlooking the ocean. The outer walls are floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. These doors are opened to allow the seabreeze to flow through the dining room. As my wife and I were sitting there waiting for the waiter to bring us the menus, we looked at each other and... More

Everything about this place is simple. The restaurant over looks the sea with Corsica on the horizon. The food is simple, interesting, and very tasty. Not always open in the week, I have been to this restaurant several times and always look forward to going abck

What an unexpected gem this was! The food, service and location were outstanding. Like other visitors we were not given a menu, but we were informed of the choices by the able waiter who had memorised the options impeccably. Objectively it's quite pricey, but once you have finished tasting the food you will not quibble with the bill as the... More

It is a very well located restaurant, right at the sea and in tranquillity. They focus on sea food and fish, so if you don't eat this, there is no point in going there. Meals are good and sometimes surprisingly innovative. The sea food mix starter is excellent and worth every cent.

There were really good and elegant starters. Than I had tomato pasta and it was normal, nothing special. But the waiter is stupid. I had to call three times for reservation and the waiter everytime told me that he don't know if i can come to lunch, because his boss wasn't there..

This place is a gem! In our 8 night stay in Castelsardo we returned again and again. What was best the food, the location, the service, the ambiance? All were quite exceptional making this a truly great evening. If we had to design a great restaurant this would be it!
